Well, if living a life you have dreamt for makes you push a little harder. Go on, read this and make the necessary efforts to live your dream.
FLUENCY AND COHERENCE-: a band 8 speaks fluently with only occasional repetition or self correction. But then it does not mean you are super human. There may be times that a band 8 hesitates, but that is usually content related and only rarely to search for language. A band 8 develops topics clearly and appropriately.
LEXICAL RESOURCES-: A band 8 has a wide vocabulary and isn’t afraid to use it. So, if you want to be a band 8 improve on your vocabulary. Express feelings, situations in a better way. Although a band 8 usually uses less of common phrases, and may be less skillfully. But then that is because there is a band 9. Other than that a band 8 can use paraphrases as effectively as is required. A positive point for band 8 is that he/she produces a majority of error-free sentences with only occasional inappropriacies or basic/non-systematic errors.
PRONUNCIATION-: a band 8 uses a wide range of pronunciation features. The most important thing he/she is easy to understand.
So, what are you waiting for? If you want to be a band 8, if you want to live your dreams, go on and make yourself and band 8.
We often form opinions about people and act acccordingly. But before you act further, I ask you to know the truth.
We often say that the South Indian people of our country know English better than the rest of the people. The results of IELTS have although a different story to tell. In the international English language testing system, Bengalis, malyalis and tamilians and five other Indian language speaking people have been trounced.
We as Indians, often get worried about our culture. Sometimes even start blaming the English language for it. But the fact is that the importance of English cannot be underestimated if we want to connect to the world.
It is hoped that British Council’s analysis of the IELTS scores is a wakeup call for the schools where English is given a step-motherly treatment in India. With this result, we need to also bring our attention to the fact, that often things are not the way, they look like. Underestimating ourselves, thinking that others are better than us, often gives them the advantage they don’t even deserve.
So, anyone out there who thinks that we are ruining our culture running over English, it is time we stop restricting ourselves and start opening ourselves to the wealth of opportunities present outside the country. And then to those who think may be x or may be y is better than you because of whatever reasons you think, remember it doesn’t matter who you are, but what you want to do for your dreams.
So, leave the insecurities, work hard and live your dreams.
You need a IELTS band 6 or above if you want to study in good universities abroad. IELTS is a tough exam and it is not easy to get a high band especially if you have a broken English. There are four sections of IELTS -:Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. You really need to work hard, very hard to get in there.
I know you must have heard all of this. It may be the case that you don’t have a strong command over the language. Most probably because you haven’t done your education in an English medium school. But here I tell you the truth. You are no less than any one out there who knows English. IELTS like any other competition is like a competition. It hardly matters how good you are, what matters is how well you prepare yourself and how well you perform on that particular day.
It doesn’t matters whether you know English, what matters is whether you are ready to make efforts. Whether you are ready to read newspaper, listen to BBC news. What matters is whether you are looking at how good your competitors are or are you looking at yourself. Improving yourself day by day. It doesn’t matter how good others are but how good you are than your previous version. And yes, “you” do matter. Because it is your exam, it is your fight. You are competing with yourself. You are fighting for your dream.
So, anyone out there, who thinks that they cant do this because may be they are very poor at English. Or may there competitors are really good. stop thinking. And start doing. Take the first step. Don’t look at others. Be sincere, work hard and follow your dreams. You never know what surprise life has in store for you.
Don’t fear. Fly High. All The Best.
